Student-Built Rocket Lifts Off From the Bonneville Salt
A student-built rocket lifts off the brilliant white hardpan of the
Bonneville Salt Flats in Tooele County, Utah, May 17, during the "launchfest"
that concluded the 2013-14 NASA Student Launch rocketry competition. Sixteen
teams, comprised of some 250 student participants from 15 states, launched
rockets of their own design, complete with three working science and engineering
payloads apiece, cheered on by approximately 500 spectators.
NASA Student Launch is an annual education event, designed to inspire young
people to pursue studies and careers in the "STEM" fields -- science,
technology, engineering and mathematics. The event is organized by NASA's
Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and sponsored by ATK
Aerospace Group of Magna, Utah. The grand-prize-winning school team will be
named by NASA and ATK in late May.
